    No offense to the talented Mr. Franklin, but Shabbaz shot 7-12 that night, and that was when he was a tad overweight. So at the end of the day, they probably didn't feed him enough that night. I didn't see the game, but I do know how difficult it is to get an open shot on SDSU from the U of A game.

    1st litmus test for Tubby's Gophers happens today. They play T-to-the-Izzo today. Sparty Jones owns the Gophers, but this year is the Gophers best chance to beat them. Gophers 1st 5 conference games (I have the order mixed up)- Michigan St today, Northwestern, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois. If they just go 2-3 in that stretch I'll be happy.

    It appears so, but what matters is March. Duke looks head and shoulders the best right now (sucks to say that...)

    Agreed, but it's early and the tournament is about who's hot and match ups. ACC is not as strong as it usually is so it's not out of the question for Duke to go undefeated. Indiana and Kansas are not that far behind Duke anyway.

Also, UCLA was favored in the game, so obviously this shouldn't be considered an upset (even though to the naked eye it seems to be one).
    Sorry, wasn't clear there. I'm a UCLA alum and a big fan. It just seems like every time they have a good game people disparage them and say that it was a fluke. I even remember hearing that crap in the Farmar/Westbrook days.

    Bryan the fan comments are even worse after a game like the Stanford one. Yes it was a pretty boring game and yes it was slow/ugly but they won and people were acting like they'd gotten blown out by 20+ points.

    Indiana is putting such a thorough ass-kicking on my beloved Gophers... I'm just in awe of how efficient they are on both ends of the court... Jesus. I just hope my Gophers regroup. Michigan comes to town next.

    UCLA's won 9 in a row now, 4-0 in Pac-12 play. Both Utah and Colorado sounded like they fought really hard (I just listen to the games on radio since DirecTv are jackasses and won't grab the Pac-12 network.)

    When are we getting back into the top 25, damnit?

    And now Michigan goes down. The Gophers play them Thursday. The Gophers got killed in the first half against Indiana, but fought back hard in the 2nd half to make it a game. The Big Ten will be a dog fight into March, but if Indiana plays the way they did yesterday I think they win the conference.

    I am not looking forward to the Oregon-UCLA game on Saturday, but at least it's a home game.

    Does UCLA play Oregon on the road this year? I think UCLA will handle them at home, but up in Eugene will be tough if they travel there.

    Nope thank god. The next 2 weeks are key in my opinion. The Oregon schools this week at home and the Arizona schools next week on the road.

    Why am I not sold on Shabazz Muhammad as a top-flight NBA prospect? He's a 2-guard who can score, and that's really all I've seen from him. A lot of 2-guards are great scorers. I don't see anything else that justifies the draft hype.

    I definitely can't talk about that. I've never understood why a lot of players have been drafted in the first place. Seems to me that NBA scouts do a pretty mediocre job with talent evaluation.

    Shabazz has ridiculous athleticism. In high school and AAU, he could take anyone off the dribble one-on-one and that will come with time at the higher levels of competition. He has impressive shooting range and he is a solid rebounder for his size. Most people who scouted him wondered if he and Ben Howland were a good match because Howland has gained a reputation recently of running a slower offense than advertised and Shabazz excels in an up-tempo game. Shabazz is the type of player who will score and usually do so efficiently for a player of his size. I can totally understand what NBA Scouts see in him because he has a lot of tools to work with. Under the right coach, his ceiling is really, really high.

    I know he does some impressive things. I just think that, at that position, teams could find a player that's not all that far from Muhammad's level somewhere in the 20's. Unless he could be as good as Kobe or Wade (a combo guard who can handle the ball AND make other people better) I see no reason why he should be considered for the #1 pick.

    Love that wishful thinking.

    He's absolutely a lottery pick, but I think late lottery. I see him letting people down if he's a top 2 or 3 pick.

    Bruins have won 10 straight. They played some alternately explosive and sloppy ball tonight, but once they drew ahead they never lost the lead. Fun one.
